Last Gasp Of Summer

by Shrug Life

Stephen I remember being at the first performance of Winning Streak, the Marty Whelan line getting the relatable laugh, as it did almost every other performance. That was 2017, and just like every Shrug song it's an already solid one improved on greatly before release. D.C Shrug does not mess around with his lyrics. Brilliant mesh of wit and relatability. definitely not on a losing streak, but "Marty Whelan's tough work". Favorite track: Winning Streak.

All the scaldy young ones, are Marching in the mud. Drinking two litre cider As only they should. They're having a good time Despite the lashing rain Enough medicine sneaked in to numb the aches and pains A field in the midlands For the last gasp of summer Enough distance and difference to embrace one another Strangers say; "Make some noise!" So the kids make some. Every mouldy man child is pissing in the shrubs Chewing on their chins, as only they should They're having a mad one, they're able to say Saw seven different bands while facing the wrong way It's a beautiful communion for 300 euro You can eat an ostrich and burn a gazebo Strangers say "Festival Name" To hear the crowds programmed refrain Until the scene has some meaning it was missing before The song really starts to mean more than the sum of its second-hand parts Recycled gestures Can't get much better Loud, proud and brainless But so contagious It does not matter If you are shattered They don't want answers Just need escape.
